Cell Phone Video of Saddam HangingUpdated: The first clip is footage that was aired on Iraqi television. It does not actually depict the hanging itself, rather it's an extended version of what you've seen on the news. The first half shows Saddam being fitted into his noose. The second half is footage of his body after the hanging.
The second clip is a cell-phone video circulating on the Web of the actual hanging. The quality is very low and it's not all that graphic, but discretion is advised. This clip has led to no small degree of controversy in the Arab-Muslim world (external link to story) because it shows guards taunting Hussein before his hanging, and Hussein is seen as defiant to the end, which has resulted in a sharp reversal, making him highly sympathetic to a large segment of the Iraqi audience.

Their smart, granular analysis is a bracing antidote to both facile dismissals and wild exaggerations... a nuanced and readable account of the ideological and organizational origins of the group." -- Washington Post
